The city is built around the beach, and it takes a little away from the beauty of the beach, but it is still very attractive and worth a quick look. The blue water is a sight to behold on a bright sunny day. This is...More

The Algarve is great, but I thought this to be the most beautiful beach in country as it was completely empty when we were there (an impossible thing in the Algarve). Hard to reach yet a beautiful reward once there. This beach is really nice,...More

Amazing beach, Yes its a bit of a climb down but people with young toddlers were doing the hike with relative ease. Unless you have a real mobility issue this should not be a big problem. The beach itself was stunning the views were great....More

This beach is amazing, beautiful, secluded, but be ready to walk and hike a bit, as the access is not easy. Get your picnis bag and spend the day there. Blue water, a bit cold as we are in the Atlantic ocean. Worth the adventure

We set off about 11.30am and parked up near the signs to the beach on the mountain road. We had a few bags packed with some picnic items and we headed off down the small path through the olive and rosemary bushes. Along the way...More

Very beautiful beach, and very special. I recommend sneakers (at least) as the hike there ( about 20minutes) isn't like a walk on the beach.It's a bit steep, rocky and adventurous. But very fun!
